Daniel Summerhill claims Tour of Japan prologue

by CyclingTips

American Danny Summerhill (UnitedHealthcare) will wear the first leader’s jersey of the Tour of Japan after winning the prologue time trial in Sakai yesterday.

Summerhill powered around the 2.65km course in 3:15 (48.9km/h average), finishing just ahead of Australia’s Anthony Giacoppo (IsoWhey-SwissWellness) and Spain’s Ivan Garcia Cortina (Bahrain-Merida).

The 20th edition of the UCI 2.1 Tour of Japan will be contested over eight stages including today’s lumpy stage 2 circuit race around Kyoto. The general classification is likely to be decided, or at least heavily influenced by stage 6, a road race just 11.3km long that takes the riders up the brutal Mt. Fuji climb.
